Since my Junior Freeskate is so long, it’s been a challenge to upload. While I figure that out, I thought I’d share some super blurry screenshots from yesterday’s test programme instead.
I passed my USFS Junior Freeskate test on Sunday, 15th Jan. 2017, age 32, as a standard track (non-adult) taker by all three judges. No reskates. I took my Novice Freeskate in 2008 and thought I was done testing freestyle until a serendipitous combo of renewed interest in the sport thanks to a skating-related fanfic collab with @apiegohome and @sylvermyth plus starting lessons with a supportive freestyle coach who knew how to pull a four minute-and-change programme out of me with a couple months worth of double run-throughs got me in good enough shape to sign up and take this sucker.
As an added bonus, I also passed my standard track partnered European Waltz and Foxtrot yesterday morning. Along with the Fourteenstep I passed in September, I have now also passed my Pre-Silver Ice Dance test (level 4 of 7). I’m pretty stoked about all of it.
